Never mind, found out this Pentium III I have is a Pentium III 450 (Katmai) SL3CC. I doubt it'll ever get the system working again - do modern PSUs work with older motherboards?

Here is the card:


What's the 26-pin like thing in the top left hand corner? Underneath the CTNT2V?

Memory is single sided 8x8 MB 128 MB SDRAM PC100 stick.
